Kid Lyrics

March 6, 2012

“Mom, can you PLEEEEEASE make Allie stop singing?” begged my son this morning.

Sure, she sings off key and can’t carry a tune to save her life.  And she messes up the lyrics and repeats the same wrong words over and over again, but she’s three and has absolutely zero sense of embarrassment or self-consciousness, so it’s cute, isn’t it?  Maybe not for everyone.  I guess what I view as adorable and hilarious as her mom is just annoying from the older brother’s perspective.

Take her rendition of her favorite song from Sunday School for instance.  Instead of “OUR God is an awesome God” she sings:

“OR God is an awesome God

He rays from heaven above

with wind on power and love

Or God is an awesome God.”
Maybe she’s pondering the varied theories on what kind of God we worship?  Is He vengeful?  Or maybe merciful?  Or how about “awesome?”
Or her version of her favorite children’s tunes.

“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in my eye”

I fear for her future husband if she already sings of diamonds in her eyes at age 3.

How about her spin on Row Your Boat, which has her channeling her inner Paula Dean:

“Row, row, row your boat

Gently down a seam

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life’s a butter dream.”

I have a few seasonal favorites from her repertoire of Christmas songs, too.

She tries to get Frosty to kick the habit:

“With a corked-up pipe and a button nose and two ice cubes out of coal.”

And sings the echoing verses of Rudolph like Mike Meyers doing Goldmember:

“You’ll go down in history (Like Norge Rashingshon!)”

As the resident music lover in our family, I keep watching and listening to all three of my kids in the hopes that one will inherit the music gene.  Despite her current level of, um, talent(?), I still think she may be my best bet.

What are your favorite kid lyrics?  I’d love to read them in the comments.  Please share the laughs!

    These are hilarious! The “Or God” one made me laugh out loud!
    I am sure Abby butchers some, as she butchers everything else she says, but of course I haven’t had enough coffee for any to come to mind yet.
    Both of my girls love to sing, though, which is hilarious to me, since I don’t even sing in the shower.
